RQuantLib DiscountCurve failed when settleDate and Holiday

Charles Duranceau
I'm working with the Discount Curve function found a case where the bootstrap failed when

Error message: Error: 1st iteration: failed at 1st alive instrument, pillar October 4th, 2017, maturity October 4th, 2017, reference date July 5th, 2017: negative time (-0.00273973) given

a)      Using a settlement date in parameter (t+2) and

b)      there's holiday.

I present below a reproducible example.

I would like to know if this is normal and how should I use the "settleDate "correctly.
Thank you
Bets Regards

Reproducible case


tsQuotes <- list(d3m = 0.0363,
                 s2y = 0.037125,
                 s3y = 0.0398,
                 s5y = 0.0443,
                 s10y = 0.05165,
                 s15y = 0.055175)
times <- c(0.25,0.5,0.75,1,2,3,5,10,14.75)

dateSett<-advance(calendar="UnitedStates/Settlement", dateValue, 2,0) # fall on the 5th this is correct as the 4th is holiday

DiscountCurve(params,tsQuotes,times,legparam)  # does not works
